Planning & Performing Dental Treatments

At Mountain View Dental Centre, technology helps us during appointments by giving our team detailed information about our patient's oral health. Technology plays a vital role in treatment planning and helping to keep dental appointments running smoothly.

By leveraging these technologies, we can treat dental issues precisely and accurately. Since they relay detailed information to our dental team quickly, there are minimal delays to starting treatment.

Chairside monitors in our treatment rooms allow us to show you your digital X-rays and scans, allowing us to point out problem areas, walk you through our treatment recommendations, and provide you with important information about caring for your smile.

Digital X-Rays

With digital X-rays, we can capture high-resolution images of your teeth, gums, and other oral structures. These can be shared with you during your appointment or can be shared with specialists if you require a referral. We can also use these to provide a clear explanation to your insurance company regarding why a treatment is required.

Panoramic X-Rays

Panoramic X-rays allow your dentist to create a single image of your entire mouth. This image is a flat representation of the teeth, upper and lower jaws, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), and nasal and sinus structures. Panoramic X-rays are often used to help plan treatments for dentures, braces, extractions, and implants.

Soft Tissue Dental Lasers

Soft tissue lasers can be used to perform precise dental procedures. The laser sterilizes the affected area and seals off blood vessels, which minimizes the chance of swelling, bleeding, or infection. Our dentists use lasers to remove bacteria, lengthen crowns, and perform frenectomies.

iTero® 3D Intraoral Scanner

The iTero intraoral scanner is used to take 3D impressions of your bite. With this tool, your dentist can scan your entire mouth and capture a digital image within minutes. The data collected will be used to generate digital replicas of your mouth's hard and soft tissues.

Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)

CBCT is a special type of X-ray machine that generates 3D images of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths, and bone in the craniofacial region in a single scan. Images obtained with CBCT allow for more precise treatment planning and allow your dentist to analyze your airway for snoring and sleep apnea treatment
